Vatican Radio to leave Short Wave?

Contributed by LC on Jul 31, 2016 - 08:05 PM

Press review

Short wave transmitting centre at Santa Maria di Galeria (Rome) might be closed ina near future, Vatican Radio French and German newscasts stated, commenting the phasing out of short wave for daily Mass and Rosary prayer on weekdays, as from 1 August 2016. A new organization of Vatican media would enhance investments on digital media.
According to the French service this modification paves the way to the "démantèlement progressif des antennes du centre d’émission de Santa Maria di Galeria" (progressive dismantling of antennas at Santa Maria di Galeria transmitting centre) the German service predicts its "Abschaltung" (disconnection).
No further information was found in both English and Italian programmes.
Vatican Radio transmitting centre is one of the most important broadcasting facility in the world and a reasearch center for telecommunications, highly respected everywhere. Many International broadcasters do exchange air time with Santa Maria to cover areas such as Africa, the Middle East and Europe. A closing down of the center will be a terrible strike to International broadcasting co-operation and a enormous waste of investments carried on for ove 50 years. Italradio fiercely opposes the end of operation.
